Please can athletes report to the tent by the start line at least 45mins to an hour before their race, to register and pick up their race number. The number must be securely pinned to the front of their vest/t-shirt. Safety-pins will be available on the day although we would ask athletes to bring their own pins where possible. There is an entry fee charge of £2 per athlete payable in cash on the day.
The top 10 athletes in each race will be invited to represent West Midlands Schools in the Inter-County fixture in November. A few extra discretionary places may be awarded to “in-form” athletes (by invitation only and based on current form from races such as MCAAA XC relays & WMYACCL races), providing we get the go-ahead from the Warks meeting organiser to run more than 10 in a team. So parents/clubs/coaches, please do nominate athletes for potential selection for these extra places.
Well done to all who competed today at Himley Hall. The provisional results are below. If you finished in the top 10 please contact me and I will send you a consent form to be completed and emailed back to me.
